  1. Enable 'default' sorting and filtering on a 'filtered ListView' on a Nintex Form

    It is now impossible to to extra filtering and/or sorting on a ListView - by clicking on the columnheaders - when the listview is already filtered by a setting in the ListView-configuration.

    When users now click on the columnheader, they expect to have the default Sharepoint behaviour, but instead, nothing happens.

    I would like to have the default functionality also available for a filtered listview, so users can easily find data when the ListView on the form is relative large.

    Example of a business case: we have a meeting-list, with instances of meetings. We have a second list, for storing…

    • Enable dynamic URLs in Rich text/labels

      Currently only hard-coded URLs can be added to rich text/labels or controls in Nintex Online. It would be great if Nintex can enable insertion of dynamic URLs

      • fn-GetQueryString in Nintex Forms

        Add the fn-GetQueryString() function to Nintex Forms for O365 so a query string parameter can be used on form load. This would replicate functionality found in Nintex Forms on Prem.

          We are continuing to work on the new Responsive Forms designer and aiming for the release next year. This will include the querystring function.

          When we are getting closer to release, I will update this feature.

        • Support Managed Metadata open term sets by including an add/edit option when selecting the data

          Currently user in SharePoint can edit an open term set if the option they want isn't there.

          Please can this action be supported by forms also?

          • created by

            Please make all viewable properties in a list, such as "Created by" and "Version", available to place on the form as read only (disabled) connected field controls.

            • Responsive Forms Controls in user

              There is no option to view the names of controls added to a Responsive form. It would be nice to have something similar like the controls in use tab so it would be easy to find the controls in a large form

                      • Incorrect help info for single line textbox control...

                        Thee is an error in the online help info regarding the expression that can be control whether a field's appearance is enabled or not. The help text states that the expression must resolve to a Yes/No value at runtime. This is NOT true. The expression must resolve to True or False. A simple expression of IsNewMode works as is.

                              In one of our requirement user wants to change the colour of each field in Nintex responsive form. We were trying to achieve this but its getting applied globally. Is there any possibilities.

                                Currently, the people picker field displays users as a list instead of comma separated, this takes up too much space on the page and need to scroll down to view the rest of the form. Can this be comma separated to condense this field?

                                    Thanks for your suggestion. Since CSS is not available in Responsive Forms, we will certainly consider what configuration options would be available in relation to the buttons.

                                    The new Responsive Forms designer does not have a SharePoint ribbon but rather a new minimal ribbon which gives us a lot of flexibility.

                                  • Add "Add new item" for managed metadata for Nintex Forms 0365.

                                    In default SharePoint form when clicking on the tags to open the managed metadata picker you have the option to add new items if allowed. This functionality is missing in Nintex managed metadata control.

                                      • dynamic redirect URL

                                        I think it would be really helpful to be able to set a dynamic redirect url based on a view or some other property in the form. Basically I would like to be able to set the new redirect URL through JS because I might not always want it to go to the same location. If you could make the redirect URL available to be set using code in the classic forms or add in variables, that would be awesome.

                                        Use Case….
                                        In SharePoint, if a user sorts or filters a list and clicks on a list item. Does something…

                                          Thanks for your suggestion Ben. This is in the backlog to be built in our new Responsive Forms designer.

                                          This will be implemented through the new rules engine, allowing you to dynamically change the submit button redirect address based on conditions in your rules.

                                          I will update this feature when we begin development.

                                            Thanks for your suggestion. The Event content type is a bit more complex than a standard List content type due to the ‘All day event’, and the ‘Recurrence’ options.

                                            Both of these features include specific logic to show more options within the control itself and would only be used within this content type. Therefore, is a reasonable effort for this content type.

                                            We may be able to expedite the support of this content type without ‘All day event’ and the ‘Recurrence’ options, but feel this would be an incomplete offering.
